Writers, opera singers, fun runs and more out in Millsap

While we have many events and happenings taking place right in our midst, Millsap people have recently been contacted by two celebrities who invite us to be a part of the latest happenings in their careers.  Author Joyce Bishop Morris, whose roots are in Millsap, wants everyone to know her latest book has been published.

Amazon now releases Mrs. Morris' books, and the latest one, "Jerzy Girl," became available in September. The "Annie" series were her first books, and out of this set "Sweet Annie" is one of the Top 100 Best Sellers in Southwestern History on Amazon.

The Annie character is of special interest to folks around here, because she is based upon the life of the author's grandmother who made her home in Millsap. Joyce has many fans from our area, and she always graciously let's everyone know what is happening with her writing. Right now, she has two more books in the works, and "Jerzy Girl" is steadily climbing the Amazon charts. May this kind lady have much more success as she continues to enrich lives through her books.

In other celebrity news, New York City opera professional Cole Grissom will be in concert at Bethesda Methodist Church, which is located just north of Garner on F.M 113. This event to which the public is invited will take place Sunday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. Cole is coming to the area and giving this special performance especially for family members who live around here. 

Mr. Grissom is highly trained with a degree in his chosen field from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston and a Masters Degree in Opera from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. 

Those from his family who are looking forward to this event include Alleen Coalson Stringer and Jonnie and Wilmer Crumb, all of Mineral Wells, and Mac and Tommie Coalson of the Garner area. Cole is the grandson of the deceased Charles and Margie Coalson Grissom, who made their home in Weatherford.
